Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    One is called linaclotide... see http://www.longecity.org/forum/topi...r-may-prevent-cancer-in-the-rest-of-the-body/ ... hopefully will be available in 2013.

    However, linaclotide can cause severe diarrhea. Another drug, called plecanatide, is a bit farther off, but it doesn't have the same issue with diarrhea... see http://ibs.about.com/od/medication/p/Plecanatide-For-Chronic-Constipation.htm

    Also, further down the pike, is larazotide, which is being tested in patients with celiac disease. It's only in Phase 2 trials, so it's years away from approval. See http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/CeliacDiseaseDrugs/a/Celiac-Disease-Drugs-In-Development.htm

    Another drug to keep an eye on is vercirnon, (also known as Traficet-EN) for Crohn's Disease, which is currently in Phase III trials. "Three pivotal studies and an open label study are underway with results expected in 2H 2013. By blocking the chemokine receptor CCR9, Traficet-EN prevents lymphocytes from homing to sites of inflammation in the gut".
